The Centre for the Environment's Human Dimensions and Governance Program develops innovative tools to monitor and evaluate environmental policy, law and planning.
Transformational change through positive social action is necessary to bring about environmental sustainability. Our program enables collaboration between diverse qualitative, quantitative and design-focused social sciences to catalyse this change.
Understanding that transparency and accountability are integral to governance, our team develops innovative tools to monitor and evaluate environmental policy, law and planning for their ongoing evolution.
We support innovative methodologies, new knowledge, societal empowerment, socially responsible technology use, human decision making and effective environmental governance. Active partnerships between researchers and industry strengthen the pathways to impact, and aim to empower industry, business, Indigenous Australians and a wide range of community groups to adopt systems and ideas that will allow them to adapt and flourish now, and into the future.
Taking action for nature – pathways to strengthening community actions
Supported by the NSW Environmental Trust, we’re developing strategies to strengthen community actions in conservation and ecology.
Funded through the Queensland Government’s Reef Water Quality Program, we are part of a research consortia modelling the impact of policy instruments (such as extension, grants and regulation) on the adoption of improved agricultural practices for reef water quality.
